Finally--hair off the face!! She looked terrific. Very nice suit and shoes but really too thin, she looks better with more weight on.

The suit is four years old, so you probably won't be able to find it anymore.

I thought she looked wonderful. I'm getting more excited for the wedding every day. :0)

She looks wonderful, but the fabric looks prone to wrinkling. Love the hair, she just can't go wrong with her hair, it's beautiful!

Amanda Wakeley also designed for Diana, although many of the pieces were worn in private.

This is only what, her second outdoor engagement? We learn by experience and she is learning fast.

The ensemble was perfectly pitched to her audience, elegant and four years old, showing both personal style and a political nous to be envied.

Check out the shoes, elegant but with a wide heel to ensure she did not end up impaled in the grass. (Remember Ascot?) And the hair? I expect great things from her, not least at the wedding. I think she may surprise us all.

Just so long as she remembers that her wedding is the one place she can push to boat out as far as she likes and everyone will just drool and applaud!

I'm not sure about that, CrownPrincess5. I'm not keen on updos because they look too hard and ageing. Kate looks lovely with her hair down.

I've seen a picture of Kate with her hair up. Not liking it much. She has a very long neck and an updo makes her look odd. I think half up is fine, but she definitely needs the long hair down to disguise the neck.

Her neck is very elegant and makes for good photographing. In any case her neck needs no disguising. It is but a sign of youthfulness and is quite alluring I find.

Catherine has a terrific profile which in itself can be attributed to her delicate neck and jawline.

If her features were severe then the length of her neck may seem odd, but that simply isn't the case.

I think having her hair pulled back into a chignon or low bun would be quite lovely. But wearing her hair half up, half down and cascading down her back also looks sensational.

I'm really hoping this latest hairstyle is a preview of what to come for the wedding! Something not so tightly pulled back with more volume and curls cascading down her back with a tiara and veil to match!

I mentioned this to my friend today at work.
I also feel, this is a sneak peak as to 'wedding day hair'
Since yellow is the color for maid's gowns, another not so surprize.

This is all so fascinating.
what are we all going to do AFTER the wedding?

that's a good question. right after it, we'll probably still be discuss hers and all the other dress. Then, well...... what will we do?

I thought Kate looked really nice & elegant, that was a timeless look. Her hair was style nicely and nice to see it pulled off her face again.

I missed this as well. Can you provide your source?

I am really looking forward to seeing more of Catherine as she seems to be a "natural".

The shoes that Kate wore on April 11 are L.K. Bennett

Me too.

Lady Catherine, where did you see that? or it was just an assumption?

I"m very interest in those. they are in heels but seemed to be very comfortable. I can see myself using one for work without needing to take my just-in-case flats.

I loathe block heels. Shudder at the sight of them. Nice colour though.

I usually love shoes from LK Bennett, but can't claim to be a fan of this design.
